No. A polygon is a plane area bounded by straight lines. The key term in this context is "plane". It is, therefore, 2 -dimensional shape. A solid, which is bounded by faces that are polygons, is called a polyhedron (plural = polyhedra).

### What is a solid figure with one face that is a polygon?

A polygon is a many sided 2-dimensional figure, and thus could never be "solid" Alternatively, it could be "one face that is a polygon". In that case the solid could be like a pyramid that morphs into a cone or a part-sphere. The base would be the one polygon, the other face would not.
